Robert Bork’s consumer welfare paradigm, which has heavily influenced the evolution of antitrust analysis and enforcement over the past 42 years, is under attack. Critics from both parties assert not only that antitrust has been unable to keep up with developments in the high tech, finance, and communications industries, but also that competition law should be weaponized and used as a tool to address broader concerns such as privacy, inequality, and political viewpoint discrimination. In response, the DOJ and FTC have launched investigations into Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Twitter and Google. Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee has launched its own investigation into these companies and are also reviewing whether changes are necessary to...

On Wednesday, May 6, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing for one of President Donald Trump's most important judicial nominees. Judge Justin Walker, who currently serves on the U.S. District Court in Kentucky, has been nominated to fill one of the infrequent vacancies on the U.S Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, the most important court in the nation after the Supreme Court. The D.C. Circuit hears many of the cases that determine the limits on the authority of the president and executive agencies, and the relationship between the three branches.

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Democratic officials and activists prioritized pushing states to implement universal mail-in balloting, eliminating in-person voting altogether. These mandatory vote-by-mail and forced early voting policies would disenfranchise voters through fraud and mistake, and violate voters’ fundamental right to vote. Advocates are also trying to impose mail-in voting through court orders, invalidating voters’ votes for their representatives, rather than judges, to make these laws. In this virtual panel, election experts Jim Bopp, Catherine Engelbrecht, and Jason Snead weigh in on how vote-by-mail violates voting rights and the recent flood of litigation related to this issue.

As leaders of groups representing millions of consumers, taxpayers, and entrepreneurs, we sympathize with businesses struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and support policies to bring them regulatory and tax relief. We object, however, to policy actions proposed in the name of “relief” that benefit some businesses by massively raising costs on other businesses and consumers.

Among the many questions they'll tackle are whether the Supreme Court issue will work in President Trump's favor again and whether Joe Biden is likely to release a list of potential nominees, as well as some novel questions brought about by COVID-19's impact on the Court's calendar and its generation of voting disputes that the Justices may address this fall.
